Posted:what drink do you usually get?

i was just perching upon a nice green velvet stool in mmy local yesterday, when this thought popped into my bonce.

I remarked to the barman:

"Alas! I do not know what other humans chose to rehydrate themselves with! I will lead a crusade to deliver this sacred information to..um....er.... me?"

for an instance..my tipple of choice is cider and black. pint of. cold. preferably.

Posted:Hmmm - good one...

driving (gotta show we're not just irresponsible p***heads):
juice & lemonade
lime & soda

not driving:
City pubs, leisure drinking - lager, pref. grolsh or stellar - usually more of a summer drink - avoid kroningburg BIG hangover

Pre-session booze - guinniss - I have to be careful cos it makes me go crazy

Airports / hangover - blood mary

Country pubs - local tipple, old tractors fanny, or whatever the comical "country pub booze" is called.

Rock pubs (ye don't wanna get TOO drunk in a rock pub...) - bitter

Airoplanes / (summer eves @ home) - gine & tonic

Power boozing - tequilla

Pub food (& @ home) - red wine, pref. french, pref. bottled au chateau, dont you know ;-)

Stupid session drinks - jagermyster or V&O / screwdriver

Alternative pub booze - cider - it makes my ears hurt!

Clubs / all-nighters - reaf / fruit & booze

...oh gosh, what a complex beast I am!

Posted:Start off on larger, prefarbly carling premier, though it ****s you up.

Then have jd and coke, normally a lot of that.

Then when sufficentley off one's face, anything I can get my hands on. which tend to be bloody awful cocktails, wine, e.t.c e.t.c

The best drink when parched is always cider.

Posted:Budwiser king of beers. It like having sex in a canoe (very close to water).

Erm, when I'm in Ireland then Guiness at times too. For some reason it's manky in every other country, doesn't travel well apparently. When you get a good 'un though. aaawwwmmmmmmmm

Then there's the compilation of various artists that make an appearance every now and then like vodka and redbull (yuk , but easier to drink than melted skittles) and one of my favourites whiskey and ginger ale. I hate ginger ale and I hate whiskey but for some reason together they're a match made in heaven.

I live in a world of infinite possibilities.

Posted:Beer here, but guinness at home, yum.

But if you ever really want to piss someone off give them a redbull-tequila. A mate bought it for me once, he thought it sounded like a good idea, Ulch it's sick. No-one could enjoy one.
And they're really expensive

Posted:If I'm out for a dancing night, then anything see through (cept gin!) so it's Tequila or Vodka...

If I'm having a nice quiet pub night then tooheys old/new, guinness or kilkenny...

But if I'm having shots, then just about anything is fine! My favourite shot is Sh*t on grass....

<subconciously forgets to mention extreme wine drinking habit>

You get the idea

Altho I have to say clubbin' with a pint ain't easy so if they have the big bottles of Newcy Brown I'll have one of them.

G&T is definitely a plane drink.
mmapart from that, any organic ale, they're just lurvely, particularly caledonian Golden harvest and Circle Master<appreciates spanners taste:)>

Or if I really wanna lose some brain cells(not too often):
Absinthe(I have a stock pile from my last trip to Praha)
Or very fine single malt whisky, I am a conossiuer don't you know.

Posted:cafferys. cafferys. cafferys.

or when being a bit fancy pants some sparkling shiraz though hard to source in the UK just the most ultimate for the summer. Red plonk AND cold.

for the moments everyone brings out the tequilla and you go "arrrghh no, i might punch someone but i like everyone here" have a Springbok. Amarulla (or baileys) and Creme De Menthe. Again a bit fancy pants but liplickin good

You are Japan and I am GODZILLA!!!!!

Hell’s Bells can also expect a good trampling for collusion!

Everyone knows I only ever drink manly drinks like paraffin, and would never be seen doing anything girlie like wearing a skirt!! As if!

Actually I’m usually found drinking a bottle of water (usually filled up form some skanky club sink)!
